Even if there is only three of us in the house, our place was buzzing with activity all week — a birthday dinner, a cozy barbecue get-together and some preps leading to the weekend. Last Saturday, our little kitchen produced 6 dozen cookies (sugar cookies and oatmeal cookies!), a moist chocolate cake with custard, two tubs of stove-top olive-oil popcorn and two tubs of pancit puti (white stir-fry noodles)
I’m proud to say I took nothing home except a sticky cake box and some crumbs on a cookie pan. The fact that my hands were constantly covered with melted chocolate and butter means absolutely no pictures to document my weekend kitchen escapades.
However, here is an image of something I have not made in many, many years. To commemorate my hubby’s birthday, I thought I’d draw him a piece of his favorite home, New York City, and make it into an old-fashioned pop-up card.
